Not sure of what to train or how to train it? Looking for some extra Runescape Gold? The Challenge System might be what you’re looking for! This members-only system allows for players to complete various tasks on a daily basis for some extra rewards.

Each day you will be given a new task to complete; the task selected for you will be based on your skills. A new challenge will be automatically issued to you every day in your chat window (eg. New Daily Challenge: Farming – Torstol Seed (0/1)). It is useful to note for the purposes of navigating this guide that Daily Challenges are issued in the chat window listed with their respective skill.

You have at least 5 days from when a challenge is issued to you to complete it and you may have a maximum of 5 daily challenges at any given time. If you receive a new challenge with 5 saved up, the oldest one will be removed. When a challenge is completed, go to the Quartermaster in Burthorpe near the bank chest.


The challenge will be given a green stamp when it is completed in the noticeboard. Pinning a completed task to the noticeboard creates an indicator that points to him for challenges which require a skill level of 30 or below. For any challenges that require the collection or processing of items, you may be required to deliver the items to the Quartermaster.

If you do not have the items in your inventory when turning in the challenge, they may be taken directly from the bank. Rewards for these challenges will typically cover the cost of any raw materials expended in completing the task.

You can speak to the Quartermaster in Burthorpe to disable Daily Challenges in certain skills if you have mastered that skill. Skills which are yet to be mastered are shown with an orange border, while those that have already been mastered are shown with a silver border. When Daily Challenges for a particular skill are disabled, a red cross is shown through that skills icon. Combat challenges can be disabled by players who have achieved level 200 combat.

It is important to note that only system administered daily challenges offer bonus rewards. Players can choose to complete challenges on their own, but these provide no reward aside from the XP from doing the activity itself.

Adamant and rune dragons are here, which worth a lot of Runescape Gold. Courtesy of Dragon force and voted for by you, they’re fresh from RuneLabs and ready for battle.

Delve beneath Brimhaven and jaunt through the World Gate to Kethsi to face these new monsters in high-level combat.

Earn new rewards such as upgrades to make level 90 power boots, a dragon slaying ring and rare, prestigious cosmetics. Learn forgotten lore, too, as you uncover the lost secrets of the Dragonkin.

This week we’ve also got two new bank boosters in Solomon’s Store – available free to members – details of the week’s streams and news on the winners of our recent community competitions.

How to Start

Adamant dragons can be found in Brimhaven Dungeon. They’re formidable foes, so you’ll need high combat levels and anti-dragon breath equipment to survive. You’ll find more dragons behind magical barriers – passable at 70, 80 and 90 Slayer. Adamant dragons are available as a slayer assignment from Kuradal or Morvran.

Rune dragons are farther away – on Mount Firewake on the world of Kethsi. This new area is only accessible through the World Gate south of Eagle’s Peak, once you’ve completed Fate of the Gods and Ritual of the Mahjarrat. The only slayer master who will assign them is Morvran.

To stand a chance against these mightiest of monsters, you’ll – of course – need anti-dragon gear. It’s also wise to come packing dragonbane ammo, as anything else will deal greatly reduced damage until the rune dragons’ armour plating is breached.

Rune dragons also have a flight phase – all the more reason to come geared for range – and an enrage phase where their maximum damage increases with each attack.

Regular rune dragons are challenging enough, but elite rune dragons can also spawn on their death. These have all the deadly abilities of their kin, with a significant boost in power – and more lucrative loot.

For two weeks following today’s release, there are increased spawn rates on both adamant and rune dragons, and an increased chance for elites to spawn when rune dragons are killed. There’s also twice the chance to get an adamant or rune dragon slayer assignment.

Rune Dragons

Speaking of loot, there are bags of it to be had for intrepid dragon slayers. Their drop tables are brimming with valuables, including some all-new rewards unavailable anywhere else.


Rune dragons can drop items to upgrade steadfast, glaiven or ragefire boots, making level 90 power boots in all three styles. You’ll need two of the appropriate item to make an upgrade. The boots degrade, eventually reverting to their level-85 base items. Note that rune dragons only drop the upgrade components while on a Slayer task from Morvran. Elite rune dragons always have a chance to drop them.

The Kethsi ring is a possible drop from elite rune dragons, and imparts a 4% damage boost against metallic dragons when worn – 8% against those in Kuradal’s dungeon. It also gives teleports to adamant or rune dragons – which can be shared by a social slayer partner, if they’re also able to reach the dragons. The ring has five teleport charges, and is destroyed when those are used up.

Elite dragons will – rarely – drop a Kethsi scroll, which unlocks part of the cosmetic Kethsi outfit – styled after the long-dead mages of that world.

There are murals in Brimhaven and on Kethsi which can be cleansed with a fully charged dragonfire shield at 60 and 80 Firemaking. This grants a lump of Firemaking XP, and adds words to your Dragonkin primer.

Adamant and rune dragons also drop pages of the journal of a Dactyl Dragonkin who continued Kerapac’s experiments on metal dragons.

Q&A Recap – Adamant & Rune Dragons Preview

Missed this week’s Developer Q&A live stream? We’ve got you covered – catch up with our video recap:

Have Fun!

Have a cracking weekend, and start warming up those dragon slaying muscles for Monday’s update!

Setting up an action bar can be a little overwhelming for newcomers, so this section is dedicated to helping you get started. But to be honest, if you have enough RS Gold, this does not matter. Abilities vary based on the type of combat and whether a two-handed or dual-wield weapon setup is used.

A third option is to use a shield, but in most cases a shield is inferior to using both slots for a weapon. The table below shows sample ability bars for each of the three types of combat and styles (dual wield and 2H). To add these abilities to your action bar, do the following:

Open the Powers Powers interface by clicking on it.
Observe there are several categories: Melee, Ranged, Magic, and Defensive.
To find a particular ability (see the sample ability bars below), first note the TYPE in parentheses around the text on hover over. This can be Attack, Strength, Ranged, Magic, Defence, or Constitution.

Click the appropriate tab in the Powers interface:
Melee for Attack/Strength;
Ranged for Ranged;
Magic for Magic;
Defensive for Defence/Constitution.

Runescape Guides

To flip between Attack/Strength or Defence/Constitution abilities, click the tiny icons Attackstrengthicons just under the text “Melee Abilities” or “Defensive Abilities” respectively. A white border appears around the type currently selected.

Match the picture of the ability to the picture in the list. If it’s not there, you may not have access to it. You can use the toggle option Toggle to show/hide abilities that are not accessible. Should a requirement to use an ability not be met, such as a skill level, it will show up in red Requirementnotmet in the popup menu when hovered over. Abilities unlocked via quests and other means will not be shown regardless of the toggle setting.

Drag it onto the desired spot in your action bar. Remember that there are multiple action bars, and you can cycle through them Abilitybarswitch as desired to set up different bars. Continue until you are satisfied with the bar.
You are now all set to use your ability bar! Right click any slot and choose ‘Customize-keybind [ability name]’ if you wish to change keyboard shortcuts for any of the specific ability slots.

These persist even if you replace them with other abilities or other actions, unless they are changed directly. Combat mode can also be changed by right-clicking the cog icon in the top-right corner – choose Revolution to automatically fire off basic abilities for you. This is a good idea for beginners or players trying Evolution of Combat for the first time, as it automates a substantial chunk of the work. Threshold and Ultimate abilities can still be triggered at any time, but must be done automatically.

Runescape: Foods

Posted: 2015-06-13 in Runescape Guides

We all need food to be alive – not only in the real world but also in Runescape world. It’s obviously that food is every important in the game – you can get food with your RS Gold or make food by your own hands.

Below is some basic categories of food:


Raw Meat can be obtained by killing one of the following monsters:

Giant Rat
Each of these creatures will drop a piece of raw meat — such as Raw Chicken or Raw Beef — which, when cooked will become Cooked Meat (or Cooked Chicken, after cooking Raw Chicken). It’s worth noting that cooking a piece of already-cooked-meat will result in a piece of Burnt Meat.

Snails can also be killed by members to collect their meat. These creatures are found in the swamps of Morytania, near the town of Canifis. To access this area, players must complete the Priest in Peril quest.


Fish can be obtained using the Fishing skill, and are often the adventurer’s first choice in food to bring along on a journey since they are quick to cook and restore many Life Points when eaten.


To make Bread, combine a Pot of Flour with some Water (either in a bucket or pot). You will then be prompted with a menu to select which type of dough to make. In the case of Bread, you should make Bread Dough. Regardless of which type of dough you make, it must be cooked on a Range.


Pies are a type of food that is eaten in two bites. Each half of the pie will heal half of the pie’s total replenishing amount. For example, if you eat one half of a Meat Pie, it will replenish 60 Life Points. the other half will remain in your inventory until it is eaten. Some pies also yield a stat bonus (eg. the Farming Pie boosts Farming by +3). Each bite will boost by the full amount, but the effects do not stack with one another (so, eating one bit immediately after the other will not boost Farming by +6).

To make a pie, combine a Pot of Flour with some Water (either in a bucket or pot). You will then be prompted with a menu to select which type of dough to make. Select Pastry Dough, and use the newly-created dough with a Pie Dish to make an empty Pie Shell. Now, simply add the necessary fillings and cook the pie on a Range. You may also use the Lunar “Bake Pie” spell if you have access to the Lunar Magic spellbook, which guarantees that the pie will be cooked successfully.

Runescape foods


Pizzas, like pies, are eaten in two separate bites. Each half of the pizza will heal half of the pizza’s total replenishing amount. to make a pizza, combine a Pot of Flour with some Water (either in a bucket or pot). You will then be prompted with a menu to select which type of dough to make. Select the Pizza Base type. Now add a Tomato and some Cheese to make a Plain Pizza. Now you must Bake the pizza in a Range. Afterwards, additional toppings, such a Cooked Meat or Pineapple, can be added to the pizza to increase its healing properties.

Baked Potato

First, cook a Potato on a Range. Next, add a Pat of Butter to the Baked Potato. You can now add a topping to your Potato With Butter. Baked Potatoes are only available to members.

Potato Topping

Potato Toppings are added to Baked Potatoes to increase the number of life points they recover when eaten. They may also be eaten as-is, but obviously restore fewer Life Points than the complete meal would heal. Potato Toppings are a member-only feature.


Stews are made by combining a Bowl of Water, Potato, and a piece of Cooked Meat (or Cooked Chicken). The stew can then be cooked on either a Range or Fire.


Cakes are a type of three-bite food, in which each of the three slices account for one-third of the cake’s total healing properties. To make a cake, gather a Cake tin, Pot of Flour, Egg, and a Bucket of Milk. Now simply use one of the items with another (eg. use the Egg with the Cake Tin) to mix the ingredients into the Cake Tin. Now cook the cake on a Range to obtain a Cake, separated from its Cake Tin. Chocolate can also be added to the Cake by using a Chocolate Bar or Chocolate Dust on it to further enhance its healing properties.


Dairy items are made on a Dairy Churn, and can only be created on Members worlds.


Wine is created by adding Grapes to a Jug of Water. After waiting approximately ten seconds, the Wine will ferment and either become a Jug of Wine, or a Jug of Bad Wine. Bad Wine yields no experience and does not heal any Life Points.


Nettle Tea is made by adding Nettles to a Bowl of Water, creating Nettle Water. This can then be cooked on a Range or Fire to create Nettle Tea. Optionally, you can use the bowl of Nettle Tea with an Empty Cup. Also, you may add Milk to your tea, although it yields no additional effect to the tea.

I know that a list of drop rates and thresholds for the most recent boss pet additions was given by, but for the less mathematically-inclined players I’ve devised a similar table giving the effective drop rates. That is, adjusted for threshold changes in drop rates, how many kills are you likely to need to get a boss pet drop. All effective drop rates are given as 1/####. All numbers are rounded up.

Boss______________Effective Drop Rate
Kree’arra………………………2667 (1000)
Commander Zilyana……2667 (1000)
General Graardor………..2667 (1000)
K’ril Tsutsaroth…………….2667 (1000)
Nex ……………………………..1067
Kalphite Queen……………1334
Kalphite King………………..1067
Corporeal beast……………1334
Giant Mole……………………1334 (500)
King Black Dragon……….1334
Chaos Elemental………….1334
Dagannoth Kings…………2000
Queen Black Dragon……1334

Again, what this means is that if you were to kill QBD 1334 times, over the course of those kills you would have a 1/1334 chance of a pet dropping. This effectively makes her drop rate 1/1334.

RuneScape: Adjusted Boss Pet Drop Rates

Notice that all hard mode drop rates, as well as those for the Legio bosses, remain the same, as they were less than or equal to the thresholds. Legiones and Dag Kings are all treated as the same monster in terms of killcount, so the rates are given across kills of any included bosses.

For those who would like the check my math (which I hope is everyone, being a stranger on the internet) I’ll use QBD as an example.

She has a drop rate of 1/2500 with a threshold of 500, which means:

Kills 1-500: 1/2500(500) = .2
Kills 501-1000: 2/2500(500) = .4
Kills 1001-1500: 3/2500(500) = .6, but we only need another .4 so (2/3)*500 = 333.33
This gives a total of 500+500+334 = 1334 kills
